From a post I did in January of 2008, I did one called The Bell is not always heard.
This is a great post in that it showed the problems society was having at the time from Kids and adults who had NO CONSEQUENCES to their actions….because the PC police said they weren’t being bad. They were only victims. I am posting this one again because today it is even more true that it was in 2008 when this one was originally posted by me. So here again is The Bell is not always Heard.
Jan 13, 2008
One of the things that people seem to forget, is that the WARNING BELL that has been going off for the last several decades, about things that are going wrong with our society, is not something that is always heard. And our representatives in Washingtons’ high places have done what they can to make the constant clanging and the din of warning fade into the background. How you ask? It is simple.
This process that has been used has taken a long time to come to fruition. It started back in the times that we all look at as the idillic times of this nation, when people had other things to worry about. Like the cold war and the big bomb dropping out of the sky. Morals were high, and the thought of premarital sex was not thought of as “normal”, as it is today.
A woman, who wasn’t married, who was pregnant was thought of as a slut…..today, she is thought of only as an unwed mother. Teenage pregnancies were not common, but today they are. Back then, sex was thought of as something that two people who were in love and married did. Seldom was it done by people who were not married, because we were afraid of getting a girl pregnant, and back then, most of the girls wouldn’t let you get that far. Sex was taught in the home, and even though we didn’t really get sat down to learn about it, we learned enough to make us not really want to do too much before we got married because of the fear of the “clap” or of getting a woman pregnant. But now? It is thought of as something that people do for recreation. Abortion on demand is now prevalent.
Through the years of the liberals meandering in our lives, we were slowly made to think that bad things wouldn’t happen if we had sex before marriage, (something that we are finding out was not the truth) and slowly the women started to know that they could have sex too. Suddenly we were having troubles with our morals, as premarital sex was happening all the time, and the “clap” (that we were afraid of when we were kids) became something worse, and our morals went farther and farther down the tubes, as more and more things that used to be taboo were made to be normal.
I remember growing up, on the weekends, we kids would go out and play football, or hide and seek or something. We would play cowboys and Indians with no one getting offended by the fact that we were killing indians. We played with toy guns with “caps” in them so they would make noise. No one really died because we knew it was pretend. If you did something wrong, you got in trouble for it. Now, the liberal way of thinking goes, if you do something wrong you are not wrong, you are only a victim. You are a victim of your circumstances.
All I have to say to this PC batcrap is that sure there are victims. But not everyone is. That is where this politically correct stuff has led us.
When we were kids, if we did something wrong, say at school, we got sent to the principles office, and there we got a few whacks with a belt or a paddle from the principle, BUT that was not the end of it. The principle, *gasp* then called our parents, sometimes with us in the room so we could hear what he had to say! And when we got home, we found out that the principle of the school had indeed told them what we had done, and we got in trouble again. The parents sided with the principle!!! In my day we were afraid to do things like take guns to school, even toy guns, because we would not only get it at school, but also at home. Even toy guns stayed at home, because of our fear of punishment! And getting it at home was always worse. The punishment usually lasted for a while too, because not only would we get a spanking, but usually we would get grounded too. If friends came over to play, they were sent home by our parents after being told what we did, and that we were grounded. How humiliating that was! See why most of us turned out good? The humiliation didn’t destroy our psyche, it strengthened it.
Back in about 1975, I remember some friends of mine who had two kids. One was the best mannered little boy you would ever want to meet. The other was only about 8 months old. Both boys were good, and very seldom ever gave their parents any troubles.
One night, we all went to the Kettle Restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I lived at the time, for an evening meal and dessert, and for some reason, that night, the little boy decided to act up. After taking this for about 20 minutes, the mom, who had it in her rights to do at the time, took the little boy into the bathroom and gave him a spanking. During the spanking, some “ole biddy” and I use the term loosely, came in and took offense to what my friend was doing and turned her into the Child protective Services.
At the hearing for the matter, I spoke, telling the judge that “this whole thing about reporting a parent when they were disciplining their kid for acting up was going to backfire on them”, because ‘the day was going to come, when “old biddies” like the reporting woman (who was not old by the way) would continue to do this until it became illegal to spank your kids.’ (In Indiana this has already happened!) ‘Then the kids will become hoodlums because there will be no consequences to their actions, and then, we will all start asking ourselves what happened.’
All of this has come true. Kids, according to the PC Police, are no longer bad……….they are only victims. They bring guns to schools, and go on murderous rampages, killing people, and everyone is asking what the heck happened?
What happened people, is the politically correct view that no one is bad. They are only victims of their circumstances. No one deserves to be punished for being bad, because they are only acting up in resistance to their situations. This is bullcrap people. Kids do bad things. People do bad things. There are bad people as well as good people.
The only way that kids will learn right from wrong, is to be punished for being bad, and to be praised for doing the right things, and to be loved.
Unfortunately, even the loving part isn’t there a lot anymore.
A lot of kids grow up with the knowledge that they were a mistake that should never have happened. First off, there are some things that should be done with the kids of today.
They HAVE to be loved. Unconditionally. They are kids and dependent on us for their upbringing and their good will. They have to learn that there is a higher power that is over all of us, whether you believe in God or not, kids have to know that they are important, not only to you the parents, but to God also.
Kids have to grow up knowing that there are always consequences to their actions, good or bad. Always They have to grow up knowing that if they do something bad, they will be punished. They also have to know that if they do something good, that they will be praised. That has to go both ways. The Liberal establishment of the pressand the PC police have made it so that there are no consequences to breaking our laws. The illegals are praised as good people who are only victims of their circumstances and in need of our compassion, not to be punished for breaking our laws. The problem with that way of thinking is, that the PC police also go 180° out of that way of thinking, when the offender is a white, Christian Republican. And this way of thinking goes all the way to the top of our government. Any Conservative in our government is wrong no matter what they do, but the liberals are not. Now, before any of you come at me for that statement, there are exceptions to this rule. There are Republicans who do wrong and rightfully get in trouble for it…..and conversely, there are Democrats who do wrong and get in trouble, but the Democrats only get in trouble if it actually somehow hits the news and people find out what they did. If it doesn’t, the bad doing is hidden from the public and dropped. If it comes up in the future, they say that bringing up something that happened years ago isn’t relevant anymore. Unless, of course it has something to do with a Republican. And they are never called on this.
This is something that I have never understood. I don’t understand how they get away with this, but they always do.
This kind of thinking has got to stop because if it doesn’t, thoughts like this will only end up further destroying the fabric of our country. It has already made us apologizers for doing what we do as a nation to keep ourselves safe and sovereign, even though what we have apologized for is nothing more than any other country in the same situation would do and has done. Can’t you see that this has led us down the wrong path? Can’t you see that we have to stop this before it completely destroys this nation? Or is this what you liberals want? I think it is. So, you see, the bell that tolls, is not always heard.
